Particle-wave duality is one of the most mysterious facets of quantum physics. It states that every quantum object has properties of both a wave and a particle. This can be easily demonstrated using the double-slit experiment. Streams of particles directed at a barrier, facing the two narrow openings, create an interference pattern, as though they are waves. Neither a pure wave nor particle description has been able to successfully explain these experiments.
